Ten of Coins
Today you may be thinking about planning for your future, especially with respect to your security and financial stability.
The Ten of Coins — this version from the The Artist’s Inner Vision Tarot — is about building your empire, on whatever scale that might be.
It’s about achieving success through hard work and determination, as well as the satisfaction that comes with knowing that it’s all going to pay off in the end. Not just for you but for family and loved ones, as this card is also about creating a legacy that can be built on for generations to come.
In this version of the card a pair of hands reach out toward the planet earth — representing openness and readiness to partake in all of the riches the Universe has to offer.
The hands are a reminder of the give and take that is such a necessary part of achieving success, as we all know that no one gets their alone. Notice how the earth’s energy field / aura glows where the hands touch it.
The words “abundance” and “prosperity” are written on the card, with the word “be” stamped on the palm of one hand and a coin in the other. These are reminders that fulfillment comes from not just monetary gain but also community and global support.
The Ten of Coins is about establishing a lasting legacy for yourself and your loved ones. It’s about planning ahead for the future. No matter how successful you are already there’s more to be done, especially as it pertains to creating something that will live on long after you’re gone.
You could be thinking of starting a family or putting money aside for children you already have. You may be in the process of giving birth to something else — a business, a creative endeavor or a body of work. Whatever it is, know that this is something you want to be proud of, so put the extra energy into making sure you do it right.

Six of Wands
Today, as Mercury moves into Aquarius and forms a complementary aspect (sextile) with Saturn, you could find yourself reaching a goal that you’ve been working hard for.
The Six of Wands is a card of appreciation and admiration. You “win” something and earn the right to be satisfied with the spoils of your victory. This isn’t about ego or conceit and it’s never at someone else’s expense. There’s a strong sense of being supported and lifted up by those who rejoice right along with you.
You may have been putting a lot of effort into your work and not even realizing that others have taken notice. Or you could be unexpectedly pulled aside by a loved one, just to tell you how much you’re loved and appreciated.
The Six of Wands is called “Victory” and refers to that sense of satisfaction and acknowledgement for a job well done.
In this deck a woman is seen racing through the dark with a flaming torch held high. There may be dangers all around her (notice the lion in the shadows) but there are also rewards (notice the gold medallions). If she didn’t have her torch (Mercury in Aquarius = Illumination) she’d likely miss them both.
The Full Moon is high in the night sky (just as it is for all of us tonight) but it’s partially obscured. Yes she needs that torch to effectively see her way through.
The Six of Wands refers to the combination of confidence and optimism that spurs each of us toward manifesting our goals. There’s a sense of triumph and victory in the knowledge that you’ve earned your rightful place, but with that comes certain expectations that you’re going to have to live up to.
Whatever form this takes for you today, know that you’ve earned it and that you deserve it. It may just give you the incentive to keep shooting for the stars and manifesting your highest goals.

Three of Cups
With Mercury retrograde conjunct Venus today it is not a good time to get your wires crossed.
Usually the Three of Cups stands for merriment, celebration and having a good time however this image paints a different story and you may find that what you do today could come back to bite you in the future.
It seems as if someone is not showing their true colours and possibly hiding behind a false persona. They may talk the talk and look good in your eyes but it is really a mask that hides who they truly are. Do not be fooled.
For this reason you may like to stick to social situations that you know and are comfortable with alongside friends that can back you up if you get into any problems. Better the devil you know… as the saying goes.
This is not the day to be partaking of too much alcohol. It is the day you need to keep your wits about you and not go following your heart but, rather, follow you head with any suspicious murmurings that little voice is tell you. You may be more on the mark than you think.
In short even though Mercury is conjunct Venus today which is usually a great sign for love because Mercury is retrograde the truth of a situation is not quite as transparent as you may think.

Three of Wands
Today may be quite busy for you and among the hustle and bustle you find yourself a part of you may lose sight of what is important to yourself.
Look at the energy of those flames as they lick around you and set you on course to being so busy that you don’t know where to start. You may find you start one thing, stop it and start something else.
Nothing seems to be finished and you are even at a loss as to what your next step should be. It may be a good time to sit down, gather your thoughts around you and write down a list of what you wish to accomplish today and then slowly and methodically work your way through it.
Then again, with the energy in this card you may find you cannot bear to do something so slow and tedious and just rush in again only to find yourself back at square one… “square one” being… where do you start again?
There is also a tendency for you to be reliving memories from your past and as you try to go about your daily chores unwanted thoughts arise that further take you from your goals. As I was writing this I decided to check what was going on astrologically today and this is what I found.

Six of Pentacles
Today you may be called upon to open your heart and loosen your purse strings, as a measure of generosity and good will.
The Six of Pentacles is all about benevolence — giving what you can afford to give: whether it’s of your time, your money or your energy — to someone who needs it more than you do.
This card speaks of understanding the pathways between giving and receiving, to the extent that there are no expectations for being repaid. You give because you can and because the gratitude you receive in exchange is more than enough reward.
Even though you can only see a portion of her face, the woman in this card looks kind and compassionate. She has the words ” again and again look” across her forehead, a reminder that all that you put out there comes back to you in one way or another. In this respect the Six of Pentacles is also a reminder to pay attention and be grateful for the blessings you receive.
You may be also be the benefactor of someone else’s good will. Look outside: did someone clear the snow away from your walkway? Or help you unload your groceries? Did a friend call just to say hello?
